Customer Reviews

Varies in quality

I got an email announcing this podcast and was very excited. Then I listened to a few. Most are just articles read out loud. This treatment of a topic makes for a boring podcast. But a couple like (Investing the Gulf's Oil Profits Windfall) are what I expected to hear, thoughtful discussions. I hope that they publish more of these, rather than just read articles.

Strategy....

Overall, the podcast contained solid information. However, it did have some rather significant omissions, which I believe would help the participant remain "engaged", rather than ruminating over the percentage levels indicated in the piece. Had the authors stated wether the companies used in the baseline survey were: publicly held companies, private, government, or a blend; the data has a different meaning. One could only surmise that the respondent companies were public, as many of their strategic initiatives are molded from outside investors.

Suggestion for Improvement

I would suggest listening to a couple of HBR IdeaCasts as a model. HBR has adopted a moderated format whereby the moderator interviews the author on the content of the article. In cases where the author is not available, they have a standin (usually a HBS professor) who "interprets" the article.
